Our latest weekly photo contest was asking for pictures of statues, and the responses were great as always. Five full pages in the forums with entries showing off statues of all kinds in situations as varied as the statues themselves. We had the opportunity to scroll through and see each one, and in the end came out with the two winners this week. Read along and see who took home prizes.
Winner of a Motorola Power Pack Micro, Michael B La Jesse!
We like this picture from the standpoint that it isn't a shot of a single statue, but instead showing off the collection from a less-than-usual angle. Looking down between all of the statues gives a neat perspective, showing off the lesser-seen side of them. Taken with a Galaxy S2 — great one.
Winner of a Motorola Power Pack Micro, Maffuccic!
This is a great "up close and personal" statue shot, really drawing your eyes to his face even though there's the outstretched hand and paintbrush closer (and slightly out of focus). The basic background of the brick really makes the silver in the statue stand out any more. This one was taken with a Nexus 5 and edited in Snapseed — awesome job.
If you've won this contest, keep an eye on your email inbox for information on how we'll get the prize out to you. It may take some time to get to everyone, so please be patient while you wait to be contacted.
